Jefferson Financial Federal Credit Union
Jefferson Financial Federal Credit Union was first chartered in 1966 and—today, five decades later, Jefferson Financial continues to serve and advance the community from 14 branches across Louisiana. The member-owned, not-for-profit credit union is now comprised of more than 52,000 members across six Louisiana parishes, making it the third-largest credit union in Louisiana. With over 175 employees, Jefferson Financial FCU is focused on its members’ financial success.
“While the larger financial industry has been consolidating over the last 30 years, Jefferson Financial continues to be a significant, growth-oriented company dedicated to serving our members and educating others about the benefits of credit union membership,” says Mark Rosa, CEO.
Rosa and his team are excited about the new technology being offered for members at the Highway 22 and 3900 Veterans Blvd. locations that offer self-service ITM units in the drive-thru, which are available to members with 24/7 account access. Members can deposit cash and checks, withdraw cash, transfer funds between accounts, make loan payments and print mini statements. Members also enjoy many of the same services offered by traditional banks, such as online and mobile banking, personal, auto and mortgage loans, payroll deduction, and more, with notable benefits and assets that help to elevate Jefferson Financial’s membership value.
“One of the top perks of belonging to a credit union is that you have the opportunity to earn higher yields on savings and borrow money at lower financing rates,” says Rosa. Since the institution is member owned, Jefferson Financial’s mission is supplemented by community action. They remain active in their support of several local non-profits, Chambers of Commerce, contributing resources and skills to ensure continued growth and prosperity for the communities they serve. Jefferson Financial FCU awards over $30,000 in scholarships to 20 high school seniors annually with its Peter C. Bertucci scholarship program.
